clinton, obviously, the daughter of bill and hillary clinton, joe biden, who i spoke with a few minutes ago. he talked about the importance of this day. you know, randi, that this tradition was started in 2009 by president obama. and he hopes that future presidents will continue it. but going back to biden, i asked the vice president's son how his father is feeling going into his second swearing-in. take a listen. >> he's thrilled. i'm very -- i'm happy. he's looking forward to continuing to be the best vice president he could possibly be to president barack obama. he's doing a pretty good job, i think. both of them are. >> reporter: now as we mentioned again, volunteers are starting to stream in. there's seven key themes that they're stressing for this national day to action. a few center around education, honoring the nation's veterans, the environment, and another one is economic development. randi? >> shannon travis, thank you very much for the update from there. and now some news outside the beltway. notre dame linebacker manti t'eo spoke to espn last night. it's his first intervie
it to bill clinton for eight years. bill clinton was smart enough crafty enough to find a way to rise above and beat us at every turn. he did it by continuing to reach out. i always say when i was a lawyer, i had pictures after congress, all these pictures of bill clinton with much appreciation. it would drive my law partners crazy. appreciation for what? you impeached him. i said yeah, those were the days. you got to reach out. >> here's a question i don't think any of us can answer. only the president can answer. can he utilize the power, the threat of power of the presidency the way lyndon johnson did with regard to resolutions during the course of the vietnam war? one senator voting against him, not being with him. frank church had voted against the vietnam war. lyndon johnson says the next time you want to damnen your district call frank church. can barack obama utilize the inherent power of that office? >> if he has personal relationships -- lyndon johnson had remarkable relationships. they knew when lyndon called lyndon meant business. the president needs to
on social security, medicare and medicaid. medicare and medicaid will bankrupt us, ask bill clinton's former keefe of staff, erskine bowls. it will bankrupt us, ask the concord coalition. it will bankrupt us, pete peterson will tell you the same thing. we're in trouble as a country. republicans and democrats, let them fight these social issues out all they want, they have to come together, though, on saving social security, saving medicare, saving medicaid and saving this country from an economic meltdown. we're not far away. katty, i criticized george w. bush for eight years for massive reckless spending. he allowed the federal debt to go up 6 trillion dollars during two terms. barack obama allowed it to go up six trillion dollars over one term m. that just continues moving forward. we can't afford this anymore. >> right. you can't afford the european model, which has imposed massive austerity and kill growth when the country is still-the-you have a long term problem of deficit and long term problem of the country of growing inequality i think is something the president was trying to addres
clinton and carter. we will not see both presidents bush. the elder, as you know, is still ill. he's recovering. and the younger sends his regrets. what's remarkable about this day is how carefully choreographed it is. the minute that michelle walks out the front door with the red curtain around it what time the dignitaries walk out, what time the president himself walks out. and at 11:55 on the dot he gets sworn in by chief justice john roberts. he'll be using two bibles today. that's not unprecedented. three presidents in the past have done the same. the first belonged to president lincoln. he used it in his swearing-in in 1861. and the second belonged to martin luther king jr. it was his traveling bible and it's fitting because today is martin luther king day. after the swearing-in, the president and the first lady family and friends, congressional leaders all head in to statuary hall for lunch. this is a tradition that dates back to 1889. they'll dine on bison and good old-fashioned apple pie. >> we go to chief correspondent and host of "face the nation" bo
of the "washington post." former clinton aid, dee dee myers of "vanity fair." conservative columnist peggy noonan of the "wall street journal." joe califano, once an aid to lyndon johnson. taylor branch, author of a new book on race. and james peterson of lehigh university. we'll round it out with the newest brother act in politics, san antonio mayor julian castro and his air, dentical twin, joaquin castro, just elected to congress. that's a big group but there's a lot to talk about on "face the nation." captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> and good morning again. we welcome to the broadcast david plouffe, architect of the president's election in 2008, again last year a key adviser in the administration throughout. let me ask you first about the situation in algeria, where this awful terrorist attack took place. we know that there were seven americans at that compound, and the reports are one is dead. do you have any more information on any of the others? >> i don't this morning, bob. obviously, if and when we have additional informatio
aggressive continuation of the campaign. they're going to hear a repudiation of bill clinton's the era is over. they'll hear no, no, we need more big government. what we've been about, if you ask the american people, president obama should focus on something, would it be equality or economic renewal, most americans would say economic renewal. >> do you think he won't be focusing on it because he spoke about equality today? >> well, not because he spoke about equality today. it is because he elevated it as a central theme of his presidency and he said that without that, there is no progress. no economic -- that comes morally and i think linearly first. that's not i think what the american people would think. >> but here's what i think is actually happening. the trickle down economic model that says, when the wealthy do well, everybody else will do better. i think it has been discredited. i think what obama firmly believes is that the economy grows from the middle class out. so therefore, it used to be the case you would say either you're concerned about growth or about equality. i think
? >> it was more about the individual popularity of the one barack obama plus bill clinton. after all, it was a decisive victory, but it was a victory for the man, not necessarily the party. >> is that how you read it, john? do you see this being an obama victory as opposed to a liberal victory are or they intertwined? >> i never want to disagree too much with one of the greater politicians in american history, but i would suggest that there was a little more party there. you won a couple u.s. senate seats that they weren't supposed to win sometimes because of republican flubs. 1.4 million more people voted for democrats for the house than voted for republicans, only gerrymandering kept the house where it is. and so i think that this man has done a lot to build a broad progressive coalition, but your core question is the important one. can you hold that coalition together? >> mayor -- >> let me say this to you though, i believe that it would have been a more telling benefit for the party if it had been nancy pelosi re-emerging as the speaker of the house and if democrat governors had
in november and 21 days in december and january of 1995-1996. it was after we closed it that bill clinton came to the capitol and said to the state of the union the era of big government is over. he didn't do that because he got there himself. he did that because he recognized that a congress that was determined to shrink government was changing the terms of his presidency. >> mike: i am 'm going to get t some of the moments of almost 20 years ago and talk about today. and talk about the president as gun control plan, it wouldn't be the first time that washington has banned so-called assault weapons. back when the speaker was in office in 1994, congress passed a similar law. coming up, i'm going to ask newt gingrich about how he felt about the ban then, and then compare it with the plan that the president is putting forth now. you've got to stay with us. we're going to get to all of that when we return. i'd like to hear from you, go to my website, mikehuckabee.com and tell me what you think there. or sign up for my facebook page and follow me on twitter. find the link to that and more at mikeh
, the city of clinton was in the midst of a civil rights struggle. after what and restored a black neighborhood was firebombed, police officers and firefighters arrived to extinguish the flames but came under gunfire. an african-american teen was killed by police that night, a white man was shot and killed the next day. the national guard moved in. nine black men and one white woman were rounded up, hustled off to jail for their alleged involvement. the young defendants, the majority just high school age, were collectively sentenced to a total of more than 280 years in prison. rev. ben chavis served more than five years in prison. shortly after he appeared on "democracy now!" last month, governor perdue issued pardons of innocence for the wilmington 10. the move came after newly surfaced documents revealed the prosecutor in the case made racially biased notes next to potential jurors, writing comments like "kkk good." i asked rev. chavis last night what it felt like to be attending president of the inauguration on dr. martin luther king day, after finally being pardoned. >> this is
to newt gingrich about what made bill clinton a great negotiator. he listened to find common ground. this is from the speaker of the house who worked to impeach the president. >> what's missing here, peggy? sometimes i think man nobody knows how to play the game any more to paraphrase casey stengel when he was managing the mets. >> it's true on the hill, speakers and such don't quite control their conferences and their caucuses as they have, but the most from interesting thing that i think-- that has been true of the past few weeks since the president was re-elected, is he's playing it in a way different from previous presidents. previous presidents get a win whether it's close or not and then they try to sort of put their arms about everybody and summon them in. we are essentially a if i felt-50 country still. so you would think the president would have spent the past few weeks going forward saying let's all be together. instead he has been very sharply, definitively "us guys versus you guys" by going at the republicans on hill, by speaking in a way that is very sour about why repu
